The Best Of: Gifts For Book Lovers

Today is a very special day on Young Creative Press for two reasons. Firstly, this is my 100th post and secondly, it’s my birthday! I wanted to do something special for my birthday post so I’ve decided to give back to the book community by sharing some of my favourite bookish companies and the excellent products they make.  

As this is a birthday post I have decided to give you some ideas of gifts you can get for that book lover in your life, whether that’s you, a friend or a family member. 

Every shop listed in an independent company which I highly suggest you think about buying from. All of their products are amazing quality and great prices! 

Bookish t-shirts

I absolutely love my bookish T-shirts, I have both pictured below and I actually received the ‘book nerd’ one as a birthday gift today. If you know someone well enough to buy them clohting hten I deifneyl suggest you check out some of hte amaong Etsy shops offering T-shirts.

In Pages is my favourite Etsy shop as they have amazing T-shirts at great prices. They also make jumpers too, which I am more than likely to be buying in the near future.

Tbr basket

If you’re anything like me then your to be read pile is ridiculously messy and you have no idea where to start. I recently received a tbr basket as a gift (the same one as pictured below) and I’ve found it much easier to choose what to read next when I’ve had to narrow my choices down so that they fit in the basket.

This is something that people probably haven’t thought about or do not own themselves so it would make a perfect gift.
